The options you are after are enabled in the IUS Community repository
http://iuscommunity.org/ .
You should simply be able to add this repository, then install the
packages you want.

On a side note, you should really look at updating the system to 5.4,
especially if it touches the internet. There are a couple packages in
5.2 that had some nasty exploits released. For example, udev has a
local root exploit ->
https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2009-0427.html, as well as some
kernel issues, and other nastiness.
